Military.com is a website designed to appeal to current and former members of the U.S. military plus "those considering joining, and military enthusiasts and supporters."
Founded in 1999, the site has been a division of Monster Worldwide since 2004. The company's main revenue streams are advertising, military-themed products and lead generation for military recruiters.
The website was founded by Christopher Michel in 1999 and went live in 2000. Its advisory board originally included two former members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as well as other academic and business leaders. By 2003, it had around 3 million people newsletter subscribers and revenues of $7.5 million.
The site claims to be "the largest military and veteran membership organization — 10 million members strong." "Membership" is free; the number largely reflects subscribers to its free email newsletters.
In 2014, Greg Smith became president of Military.com and a vice-president at Monster. Smith retired from the Navy as an admiral in 2011; among other jobs, he served as head of public affairs for U.S. operations in Iraq.
Military.com has been criticized for its connection to subprime for-profit colleges. Its partner in lead generation, QuinStreet, previously settled with the U.S. government after being accused of preying on veterans.
